We had a room for three people and it was spacious and clean.There was free wi-fi with fast connection, and a flatscreen TV. The shower was excellent! There was both a ceiling fan and air-conditioning. It also had a kitchenette with a fridge, hotplate and micro, plus a jug with tea and coffee, so you don't have to go out... More

We stayed at this motel in March, 2015. The lady manager was very polite and helpful. We booked for 2 nights in a studio room which catered for all our needs. The room was clean and tidy. The free WIFI reception was poor. The laundry facilities are limited with only one washing machine and one dryer available. The car parking... More

This motel is quite centrally located and very quiet, no traffic noise at all. There is a central courtyard full of greenery and each room has an outside door where you park your car and another door onto this beautiful garden which is lovely. You get a nice flow through breeze with both doors open. We loved our stay, it... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and found it very comfortable. The service was good, beds made daily and towels replaced. The staff were friendly, although they didn't seem to know much about dining out in the township. Undercover parking for those on the 1st floor, and in front of the unit on the ground floor.

Stayed for one night on the way north and though basic was more than sufficient for the night. The staff were wonderful, very friendly and accommodating. The location is only a short walk to the main strip (about 10 mins) and the fact we could park our car so close to the unit was great. Would definitely use as a... More

Located away from the highway noise this motel is not your average "Budget" accommodation, although it was the cheapest in town for the night we stayed. There is no doubt that it was built some time ago but that doesn't stop it being an attractive place to stay. Everything was clean and well presented and the bed was fine. Stay... More

I stayed in a ground level suite with a lovely courtyard, quiet clean and just a nice stopover before heading to Byron. Overall room clean basic essentials could do with some updating in the rooms, my room had parking spot right outside the door so convenient if you have a car.

Only stayed for one night here but found the staff to be fine and the room to be of a good size. Our room appeared to have had a recent renovation including the bathroom. Our bed was comfortable and it was a quiet place to stay. Nothing flash but presented as the best budget hotel in Ballina.
